Damn Weddings are expensive. I’m not talking about having a wedding or planning a wedding but going to a wedding. First off you need to buy a present so you go online to William Sonoma and find the gift registry. Then the cheapest thing you can find is a $129.95 blender! Now being someone who owns a $12.99 blender from Target my mind and wallet melted at point of actually buying a $129.95 blender. Never mind the gift wrapping and shipping costs! Oh don’t forget the airfare to fly up to San Francisco for the wedding and the hotel. And unless I don’t eat between Friday and Monday there is always the expense of eating out and then some sight seeing. Finally the only part that I actually get anything is that I need to buy a new shirt and shoes. So after work tonight I’m off to the Bloomingdale’s sale to buy something to go with my brown suit which I’m having dry cleaned and pressed today. So in total a few hundred dollars is being spent for a wedding, and it’s not a relative. Oh well at least I’ll have new shoes for work after the wedding and it will be a few days of being in the Bay Area instead of LA so I need to keep thinking it’ll be a fun mini-vakay!
While I’ll be at a wedding in Bay Area this weekend my fellow LA Bloggers who I love so much will be have a garage sale. Damn, I always miss the fun stuff. So if you are in LA and want to say to some of yours and my favorite bloggers like Jason at Jason’s Room, Michael Lucas at Lucasblog and so many more head on over this Saturday. Dan Renzi of Real World fame is the organizer so you know it’ll be lots of fun.
While I’m speaking about other great blogs I’m reminded how it is always great when people you know find success in life. Even those who you hardly even know. In my job over the years I’ve talked to Micah over at “Shut Up! I Know” hundreds of times on the phone but never actually met him to a blogger event at iCandy a few months ago. These days you might recognize Micah as one of the Hairapy guys! If you don’t know who Micah is you will soon as he is all over the web with the Hairapy website and has been profiled on various gay blogs like AlterElton.
As for my normal blogging duties...this morning after snoozing for an extra thirty minutes I made it to the gym. Now this past week I’ve been having issues with my legs being sore so I spent the warmup on the bike for about 10 minutes then finished up with cardio on the cross ramp for 18 minutes. I decided no running till I buy new sneakers. Even the cross ramp was bothering my feet today. I need better arch support for my flat feet and my sneakers are all beaten down and flat again. In between my cardio I did the same boring weight routine as usual. After tomorrow mornings swim practice I’ll be taking some time off from all excretes to I get back from the wedding! Wahoo! Another plus of going to the wedding...sloth!
